Perth planning for a pop-up water park this summer

Having fun in the sun, with my pop, up, waterpark.

For the first time in Australia, a pop-up water park has just been approved for Perth's Swan River foreshore, taking up residence on the land next to the Belmont Park Racecourse from November through to April for the next three summers. It's called Xscape at the City, and the main event will be the tallest water slide of its kind in the world: a two-lane, 13-storey high slide that is 110 metres long. In addition a 25m pool, children's pool, inflatable obstacle course and trampoline tent have all been proposed.

While the water park has been approved by the Town of Victoria Park, final approval still rests with the WA Planning Commission, but who can say no to this, huh? More info at the WEBSITE.

Here's a semi-related awesome video that we've been looking for an excuse to post on the website for ages now:
